Last week our little Mr T turned 3!! My little baby boy is not so little anymore and a great day was had - though as with most parties there were tears and tantrums and way too much sugar. I have vowed that i will not be throwing a party like this again, as fun as it was i had way too much food and way too many options that all contained way too much sugar!!
The party was simply and quickly thrown together (bit hard to plan anything too elaborate with a newborn who does NOT want to be put down - EVER) with a few finds from etsy in particular the lovely Mel at Sweet & Snazzy who helped out with the printables and a very clever sister-in-law who made Mr T's dreams come true with his Lion birthday cake!
So now that his birthday is done and dusted i have cleaned out the cupboards of all the sugar nasties (goodbye lollies, chips, biscuits etc) which have found there way into the pantry during my pregnancy and made way for our healthy life to get back on track (hello, cacao powder, chai seeds, kale chips!). I also purchased Lorna Jane's new book MORE which i have read and LOVE. It took me a bit to get through it as i could only manage a few pages during middle of the night feeds, but it has given me so much inspiration and motivation to get back on track. And not just my weight or fitness but my whole life. Prior to kids i was the one who had all her goals and dreams written and plastered on my walls and office, i was always trying new recipes and foods or reading self help books such as 'the secret' and the classic 'The Laws of Attraction'. I always knew where i was heading and had a clear path of how i had to get there in my mind. Lately i feel like i am floating. No goals written with deadlines, no action plan for where i want to be. And i have that lethargic lazy feeling of complacement that comes with not pushing yourself or striving for more.
SO i have vowed to eat amazing healthy yummy food and start planning my goals again! I am super excited, the healthy eating is challenging but i am starting to feel really good again (mind you it has only been four days! i will let you know if i can keep this up!). With the new year quickly approaching i am excited about what is coming my way!!
House inspiration is coming thick and fast this week - it always does when the new magazines come out - Belle this month has an amazing house featured by the super talented team at Ian Halliday's BKH, the decking on this pool is superb and exactly the look i am after: simple, stunning and of so chic!
No engagments booked in this weekend! Yay.. so you will find me at the farmers markets bright and early on saturday morning and then relaxing for the weekend!
Have a great one xxx
